Periods As Indicator Of Your Health

Like them or hate them, welcome them or dread them. Periods, menses, chums - whatever you call them, the phenomenon of menstruation, is a part of every woman's reproductive life. Menstruation is the periodic monthly bleeding of the lining of the womb which starts from the time a girl attains puberty till the eventual stopping of this event called menopause. For every woman, the parameters of a 'normal' period may vary, but each one can spot any deviation or anomaly, which in turn may actually help in spotting a bigger problem in the early stages.

Empowering women with knowledge regarding their periods is the first step in helping them seek timely medical help rather than considering menses to be a taboo topic.
